Your recommendation(s) and mailed materials (test scores, transcripts) can also come at different dates. Applicants will receive emailed status updates on the items needed to complete their applications.

  • We pride ourselves on a holistic application review process. This means that we look at each applicant as an individual and review your test scores and GPA alongside your other materials to get a full picture of your academic and personal background and determine your fit at KGI. Therefore, we do not have minimum requirements or cutoffs.

  • KGI does not typically accept transfer credit due to the unique nature of our courses. However, contact your admissions counselors for questions about specific courses.
